I brought two friends to Zumba last night. One an overweight teenager, the other a friend my age. Both loved it and had a great time. I was so happy my favorite teacher was there. Both friends have promised to return. Just can't keep the good news of Zumba to myself! There is an exercise program out there that you will look forward to doing. I am loving the fact that my clothes are baggy! An old pair of jeans (16s') almost fell off in the kitchen last night!

Zumba is amazing. I really started getting serious about my weight loss when I got my YMCA membership about a month ago. That same day I took my first Zumba class... I am hooked! I now go a minimum of five days a week. I have only missed one day because of a school function my daughter had. I even considered canceling just so I could go to Zumba. It's the healthiest addiction I've ever had.

Another amazing benefit. I used to have WICKED PMS! Cramps, bloating, (and I mean at least five pound water weight gain) mood swings (irritation to despair and back again). I was unbearable to live with. My last two periods came with no symptoms whatsoever. What a relief for me and my family. I LOVE ZUMBA!!!!! emoticon

It feels so good to be making progress. The compliments and loose fitting clothes are way more fulfilling than all that fatty food I was eating!

Way to go! Sometimes when I haven't done Zumba in a while I forget how GREAT it makes me feel - thanks for the reminder. Right now I'm unable to attend a live class, so I went ahead and ordered the new Exhilerate DVD's - they should be in my mailbox tomorrow! I can't wait!! Congrats and keep up the good work!

I have diabetes and high blood pressure and I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. My diabetes was totally out of control, my pressure was way too high. My doctor was disappointed in me. I had no energy, slept all the time, house a mess because I did not have the energy to clean. My loving family is so patient with me. I thank God for that. I started Zumba 3 months ago and was hooked after the first class. Had such a good time. Who knew exercise could be so much fun. Now just three month later I am so amazed by the results. Most importantly, my diabetes is under control. I went to the doctor yesterday and my blood pressure was 118/69. It has not been that low since I was in my 20's! I have lost 12 pounds! I barely changed my diet. Now I am working harder on my diet so I expect to see results even faster. Lost two dress sizes! Went from a 16 to a 12! I sobbed when I put on a pair of size 12 pants last week! I thought I would have had to lose more weight to go down two sizes. I have energy! I'm cheerful! Its really exciting. emoticon
